These elephants have traditionally lived in the hilly forests far behind the mangroves. Recently as the mangrove cover has increased they have begun to come to the water to play (it is too saline to drink). The dense mangroves allow them to hide from humans, and escape into quickly. They are extremely rare to see, within WIF it was the 2nd sighting ever.
